Backup Technology Announces Version 2.0 of Free Online Backup for WordPress Plugin

Backup Technology, have released version 2.0 of their free Online Backup for WordPress Plugin. The plugin was originally created when there were no automated online backup services for WordPress with the aim of increasing data security for businesses and bloggers. The plugin has been updated based on user feedback and comments and it is now much more flexible, comprehensive and user friendly and offers an increased free storage quota from 50MB to 100MB.

‘Wordpress is used by over 14% of the world’s top websites, yet we found that companies were not backing up their websites effectively.’ said Ritchie Fiddes, Executive Vice President Sales & Marketing of Backup Technology.
Building on the previous version which backed up settings, pages, posts and comments, users can now also back up media, attachments, themes and plugins. It works by initially conducting a full backup of the site and thereafter periodically searching and updating any changed files.

Furthermore, the user interface has been simplified and it is now possible to track a site’s full backup history. As before, all backups are fully compressed and encrypted and multiple WordPress sites can now be backed up to a single backup account.

“The growing concern amongst internet users over online security has meant that this is certainly a much needed free service. With more than 21,000 downloads of version 1, we believe that the new features and increased storage will be even more popular’ said Fiddes.

Blogging is a big business with Technorati logging 133 billion blogs since 2002. However, the majority of sites are left unprotected because the sites are only as safe as their web host. 86% of today’s active bloggers have been blogging for over a year and for all the time and financial investment, only a small percentage of these blogs are actually backed up.
